i gotta say
im just so bummed out about heath ledger

i found out in the middle of my art opening last night
and it was so staggering and sense-less
it reminded me of the way i felt when i got the news about john kennedy junior's death.
a great young man in his prime with a brilliant career and magical life ahead of him
a man who seemed to have it all
suddenly gone

they compared heath last night to james dean
and in some ways i can see it
some not

what i do see
is a talented young actor
who had made his mark
the father of a 2 year old
someone who seemed modest and kind
and who inspired others
just gone

its sad
that's all there is to say

he was only 28
a time to start life not to finish it
